Mary, mother of the Christ child was an elect woman.
Scriptures and Scholars from different religious backgrounds
have had these thoughts about her.
-"One does not have to wonder at her declared "favor with God."-Richard Dana
"and behold, he shall be born of Mary, ..she being a virgin, a precious chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the son of God."(Book of Mormon/Alma 7:10)
" Can we speak to highly of her whom the Lord has blessed above all women? There was only one Christ, and there is only one Mary. Each was noble and great in the preexistence, and each was foreordained to the ministry he or she performed. We cannot but think that Father would choose the greatest female spirit to be the mother of his Son, even he chose the male spirit like unto him to be the Savior.. (Bruce R. McConkie)
Thank you Mary for your devotion, sacrifice and the love and care of the Savior.
